Cannot use disposable address to send emails?

Cannot use disposable address to send emails?

I have a yahoo mail account (my “real” email address) with several disposable addresses set up.

I have added the account to my z1 phone using the “email” application.


I have a significant problem (for me) in 2 situations:


  • When I wish to compose an email from a disposable address I do not have that option under “Sender” (it defaults to my “real” email account address).
    • I have tried looking in settings – nothing I can see relevant there
    • I have tried holding my finger on the “From” area to see if I get any options – no
    • Note: I can do this easily with both my Nokia and iPhone email applications. There is a scroll option to select which email address within the account (i.e. disposable addresses) to use to send an email
  • Consequently also, when I receive an email from someone replying to my disposable email address (that I have sent from another device) and I go to reply, the z1 mail program only lets me reply from my “real” email account address (which would then become visible to the addressee!)


Hence I am unable to keep any privacy of my “real” email address if I use the z1 email application!


I have searched forums (Sony and yahoo), but can find no mention of this – I can’t surely be the only person who needs to send emails from a disposable address?


Appreciate any help on this as this is a deal-breaker for me with this phone.


Phone: z1 compact
